Born: 1970 Diss.

Weight: Fighting it

A keen footballer from the age of seven with early influences including seeing Ipswich winning the FA Cup in 1978 and my Uncle Kenny Bartram who started up a junior team at Fersfield near Diss from scratch. From then I was hooked and dreamt of glory as being the next creative midfielder in the mould of Arnold Muhren or Bryan Robson. Instead I made do playing at a bit at various clubs around South Norfolk, although knee injuries proved a bit unkind early on. To be back involved in football however, at such a great club as Tasburgh, helping youngsters enjoy football, is a fantastic way to continue being involved in the great game.
